Deputy Governor, Enugu State

“It is with joy that I stand here today to witness a great show of love for humanity and dedication to the cause of charity and selfless service as exemplified by Aruike Speciality Hospital in Enugu State. The most important thing I observed here is that this is a Nonreligious Organisation. It is ecumenism at work.”
